Gallup Poll: Obama receives highest approval from Muslims, among other faiths

A new Gallup Poll during President Obama’s first 100 days in office finds broad support for him among Americans affiliated with most major US religions. US Muslims and Jews gave Obama his highest approval rating, at 85 percent and 79 percent respectively. He also received a favorable response from the majority of Roman Catholics and Protestants polled. According to this latest polling, Obama’s highest approval came from Muslims – more than all other faiths polled. The results of this poll are based on telephone interviews with nearly 100,000 adults polled nationally, conducted between January 21-April 29, 2009.
